Help me Install my H&R Sport Springs?

Anyone in the OC willing to come to Irvine and spend a day in my garage helping me install H&R sport springs on my new '11 E90 M3?

Nothing in life is free, so I'd reciprocate with the sodas, snacks, beer of your choosing, lunch and a clean restroom.

THEN... I'd owe you a day of support working on your car or motorcycle. Honestly, I'm a decent moto tech and won seven regional roadracing championships on a self-built and tuned CR500 "motard" back in 2001 - 2002., so my moto help is probably more beneficial than my car help.

I have a clean garage, decent tools (though nothing car-suspension specific) a floor jack, and jack stands.

Send me a PM if interested.

It's very easy to do yourself. Follow this DIY http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=183011

All you need, if don't already have is a torque wrench and a spring compressor.

I used the DIY from the above thread and it took me 3hrs by myself. Granted this was the fifth set of springs ive done on a car, my M was by far the easiest. What's not listed on the DIY from what ive read on this board...

1. Watch the EDC connection that's on the driver side front and driver side rear. Its a plastic servo with a plastic tie rod connected to small ball ends (the tie rod is a few inches long and runs vertical). When you are installing your new springs be careful not to push the A Arm down to far or it will break. Its easier to disconnect one end.

+1 You are right about this, it is easy to over look and I nearly broke my back one. FYI, those little arms are for the auto levelling on the headlights...... nothing to do with EDC.

As was mentioned by the people above, the suspension is very easy to do on the E90/92/93 M3. If you are mechanically inclined at all you will have no issue.
